There are two government entities that can restrict a person’s ability to drive within the state of Oregon: the court and the Driver and Motor Vehicle Services Division (DMV).
The DMV is required to provide notice to a person before suspending or restricting a person’s license under their administrative authority. In most cases, a person has the right to request a hearing in front of an administrative law judge to challenge the DMV’s request to suspend or restrict his or her license.
I am a criminal defense attorney attorney based in Medford, Oregon. In most cases, a person has a very short window (often 10 days) to request a DMV hearing. I represent people in Jackson County DMV hearings and I understand how the process works.
